'Turbo Fast' clip: See what Turbo and Skidmark are up to -- VIDEO

Kids deserve to binge on TV House of Cards-style too, right? But because Cards and Orange is the New Black aren’t exactly G-rated, Netflix launched a Dreamworks-produced animated series called Turbo Fast about a team of action-oriented snails just for kids. READ FULL STORY

Disney Channel features its first gay couple on 'Good Luck Charlie' -- VIDEO

Near the beginning of last Sunday’s all new Good Luck Charlie, parents Bob and Amy Duncan briefly tangle over who, exactly, is coming over for a playdate with their daughter Charlie. Amy says she’s invited a kid named Taylor and his parents, including his mother Susan. Bob says that he’s also met Taylor’s mother — but he could swear her name is Cheryl.

There’s some classic sitcom back-and-forth arguing before the doorbell rings and the truth is revealed: Taylor has two mothers. And perhaps more importantly, the show treats this fact like it’s no big deal. (Taylor and Charlie’s playdate isn’t even the episode’s A-plot; instead, most of the half-hour revolves around big sister Teddy and her best friend Ivy, who’s preparing to leave for college.)

'Now Let's Dance' along with Dan Zanes and Elizabeth Mitchell -- VIDEO


Family-oriented folk stars Dan Zanes and Elizabeth Mitchell with You Are My Flower have teamed up to release a new album, Turn Turn Turn.

Zanes and Mitchell are also set to perform on Sprout’s Sunny Side Up Show, a live programming block aimed at preparing preschoolers to start the day.

Watch Dan Zanes and Elizabeth Mitchell with You Are My Flower perform “Now Let’s Dance” in an outdoor groove session here:

'Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.': Eliza Dushku talks voicing She-Hulk in the new Disney XD show -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Disney XD’s “Marvel Universe” television block is expanding. New animated series Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. joins the Sunday morning superhero lineup on Aug. 11 and brings together five larger-than-life Marvel characters.

The show features the voice talent of Fred Tatasciore (longtime voice of the animated iterations of the biggest and greenest Avenger), Clancy Brown (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Red Hulk, Ben Diskin (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Skaar, and two Buffy the Vampire Slayer alums — Seth Green as A-Bomb and Eliza Dushku as She-Hulk.

Agents of S.M.A.S.H. is an opportunity for Disney and Marvel to introduce these characters to a new generation, while also showing a new side of these characters for fans already familiar with the most smash-prone Marvel heroes.

For Hulk, it’s his chance to finally be a leader. “He’s definitely a father figure who’s aware of trying not to be a monster” on the new show, Tatasciore told EW.

Hulk’s cousin Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-Hulk, is the most human-like of the show’s heroes who have found their bodies transformed by gamma radiation and other encounters or experiments gone wrong. So, Dushku says, She-Hulk “brings a lot of the humanity and empathy to this unconventional family unit, yet she can also be pretty fearless. She’s still a fighter.”

Below, check out an EW exclusive clip of She-Hulk’s crash-landing entrance into Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., then read on for more from Dushku about her work on the new series: READ FULL STORY

So this is how 'Empire State of Mind' sounds (and looks) as a lullaby -- FIRST LOOK


Spoiler alert: It’s pretty soothing!

Call this the music box version of Jay Z and Alicia Keys’s rousing New York City anthem — complete with a charming video that shows snapshots from a teddy bear’s tour of the Big Apple. First he’s out in Brooklyn, then he’s down in TriBeCa…


'Community' star Yvette Nicole Brown guest stars on 'Shake It Up': EXCLUSIVE

She’s been sweet as sugar on Community but on this Sunday’s Shake it Up, Yvette Nicole Brown seems just a little bit shady. Brown plays Madame Tiffany, psychic to Cece (Bella Thorne), whose best friend Rocky (Zendaya) tries to prove that the psychic is a fake by showing everyone that it’s all about the power of observation and suggestion, but then all of the kids at school begin to think Rocky is actually clairvoyant. And it looks like Madame Tiffany is playing along.

Check out the exclusive clip below.


'Degrassi' turns 13: Sneak a peek at the premiere -- EXCLUSIVE

T-minus one day until Degrassi‘s triumphant return to TeenNick! Though TV’s greatest Canadian import is heading into its 13th season, it shows no signs of slowing down — expect a new season filled with hookups, breakups, and other capital-D Drama, starting with the scene you’ll see exclusively below.

In it, we catch up with Maya and a newly bleach-blond Tristan, who are getting ready to have the best summer vacation ever — even though one of their pals has apparently been written off the show. (At least there’s a brief explanation for why she’s missing, delivered with typical Degrassi finesse. That’s more than Kendra got!)
